Princess Diana, David Beckham and Robbie Williams are among 150 stars shortlisted to feature on a new £10 note


The late royal Princess Diana, footballer David and singer Robbie are are being considered as potential replacements for British scientist Charles Darwin on the back of the note.

The Bank of England has released a list of people that members of the public consider worthy of appearing on the money when the new series of notes is released next year.

But unfortunately for Posh and Becks and Take That fans, David and Robbie are unlikely to appear as other famous faces are considered more suitable.

Celebrities and historical figures being considered include former Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, poet Geoffrey Chaucer and The Beatles.

However, the person most likely to appear on the new notes is mathematician and computer scientist Alan Turing after 25,000 people signed an online petition calling for his achievements to be more widely recognised.

Which celeb would you love to see on the back of your money?
